Here you are Hosta -   Don't you like the accents on CTM, Hosta? I have an accent  rather like that.

I watched 2 episodes of Karma Hospital last night, love it.

See original post

 I think Hosta is talking about the residents, not the nurses Liz. They try to put on the cockney accent, they sometimes just don't get it right.

its a bit like the 'country' accent, does anywhere from Norfolk to Cornwall.

What plant is this?

Only if you plant them in the garden, they can grow up to 20' tall.o

I would put them out in the garden, they don't like being messed about with, so I wouldn't pot them up.

they may flower this year,  judging by the amount of dead leaves they must be a year old already. when did they first appear?  

Salvia hot lips

Posted: 13/03/2017 at 09:58

I bought, yes! Bought one of those hot pink salvias, it takes very easily from cuttings, here's a photo of a couple of the cuttings, in their first year, photo taken 28th October and still it kept blooming, it's stayed green all winter, I'm about to cut it back soon. It suits my garden late summer and Autumn when it's all hot colours.

So now then Mike.  Prisoner in the Dock.   So Mike.....Explain yourself.  Yes I live reasonably close to KEW.  I am a Member/Supporter.  Despite now being long retired.  Plants, every facet regarding plants is in my blood.   So perhaps.  Shall we go on a visit together.  So in through the gate, pay up and enjoy the day.  So approaching the  Main attraction The Princess Diana glasshouse.  This must be thecenterpoint.  To get there.  We pass through settings of  basic beds.  OK there is a pond also.  Forgive me for perhaps being a bit loastful, but. Up til now.  Were I not a member and card whatsit.  Truthfully I would feel let down.  Being part and pacel or the horticultural theme, I wasn't all that immpressed.  I came upon the odd gardener.  I tried to engage in conversation.   Sorry.  No speaky english.   I was and remain so shocked.  I spent a lifetime in horticulture.  It made my day when  a visitor stopped and aked a question.  When yo visit Kew.  Stop and ask.  That is if you see a member of staff.  What is it.  Perhap our host, Daniel Haynes might know.  Dan.  You and AT went to Kew.  Great times etc, but.  Why this no go between staff and public?

 You don't change do you, still slip in the odd 'R' remark. Do you thing people that don't speak English very well cannot know  about gardening. I have never heard an overseas visitor say the works 'Speaky'

" DON'T GO TO BODMIN"  We've heard on many occasions from folk round here.

" 10,000 people, one set of great grandparents"

I have to confess , I'm not keen on Camelford either. but I love Crackington Haven.

See original post

 Redruth and Camborne are the worst, you take your life into your hands when you go there, don't make eye contact!!  Trevone  and Tintagel are my favourite places. 

Bodmin has had its roads up for months, you have to go right out to camelford and back in that way, so that and the roadwork stretching for 7 miles, and has been for three years, it's a nightmare to go anywhere down that way.

I need to go to Homeleigh and the glazier so let me know when you're home again on the next nice day and I'll bring the iPad.
